Francois Peron National Park & Peron Homestead Precinct

Francois Peron National Park offers some of the world’s most impressive land and seascapes with unique scenes of red dirt desert edges meeting turquoise blue waters. Until 1990 the Peron Peninsula operated as a sheep station. It was then purchased by the State Government and in 1993 Francois Peron National Park was declared. Today, the Peron Homestead Precinct shows remnants of what it was like to live on the remote sheep station and it’s here you can discover visitor displays and soak in the famous artesian ‘hot tub’. Drilled from 1922-1923 the water was used to fuel nine watering point for livestock across the property. Today, it offers a relaxing hot soak for visitors. The Peron Homestead Precinct is accessible by a two-wheel (off-road) drive with parking available.

For adventures further than the Homestead, a high-clearance four-wheel drive is essential and will open the door to incredible natural experiences and adventures.  No four-wheel drive, no problem! You can also experience the park with a local 4WD Eco Tour or from the sky on a range of scenic flights.
